Former Mayo TD and Senator Michelle Mulherin has announced she's returning to her previous job as a solicitor.
Ms Mulherin was first elected to Ballina Town Council in 1999 and was also a Mayo County Councillor from 2004 until her election to Dail Eireann in 2011.
She lost her seat in the 2016 general election, and later served as a Senator from 2016 to 2020, after being nominated by then Taoiseach Enda Kenny.
On her official Facebook page, the Ballina native has confirmed that she's returning to her work as a solicitor.
Michelle Mulherin says it's a big change again, but she's looking forward to rising to meet the challenges of this new chapter.
She added - " I will be working alongside my excellent solicitor colleagues, Carmel Duggan and Caroline Barry of Duggan & Barry, Solicitors."
